Roadside Sculpture, Palm Springs Style

The property owner and artist-in-residence has been a local fixture in Palm Springs for years.  His large lot and home in the Ruth Hardy Park/Movie Colony area of Palm Springs (not far from Frank Sinatra’s home) has become home to countless sculptures made from various materials including metal and wood.

I don’t know who he is, but all the locals know about the place and it’s quite a marvel.  At Christmas, the place is lit up with all sorts of holiday-themed sculptures.  The rest of the year, we have the “permanent” collection on display.

Is it hideous junk or genius art? It’s all in the eye of the beholder.

The entire back yard is filled with these sculptures. I think it might be a scary amusement park for kids.

Check out the pond, complete with ducks, bridge and archway matched with a True Value trash can.

I think the JOY sign was left over from Christmas.

If the knights in armor don't scare you away from the front door, nothing will.
